The hotel is like a small village laid out, with small houses with 10-12 living areas (ground floor and 1st floor) and small ponds, in which one flamingos, peacocks and südameriknaische ducks looks.

Except for the royal service, the you can book. But do you? Our room was very spacious, that …  read hotel review

My wife and I were unhappy with our living arrangements at the Melia. So we spoke to the my time consultant, Angela. She was very helpful. When we told her what we were going through the she was very sympathetic and willing to help. She was able to get us a meeting with server all managers to converse about our problems with. She did not rest until we were happy with our stay at the Melia. I would like to thank her so much again. She made our trip with while. And I would like to thank her for making ... our wedding anniversary amazing. I would go to the Melia again as long as she is a "my time" consultant. read hotel review

  • November 2015
We have been to the Melia Caribe Tropical numerous times, we consider it our Home away from home. We have been there as a couple, with family and friends. The Levels lodging is outstanding. The beach is very tropical and spacious. Dinning experience is fantastic, especially at the Quatro Restaurants and the Gabbi restaurant has a very special atomsphere and the food was outstanding for breakfast, lunch and dinner. We also enjoyed the French and Dominican restaurants. Steaks and lobsters were superb. Waiter service at restaurants was very upscale. The Level and guest services management also provided outstanding service, it ... exceeded our expectations. Room was spacious, clean and was well serviced. We also spend time at the spas which offered great massage selections. The pools also were very enjoyable. We interfaced with numerous guest and they were all nationalities all were very friendly. also beach lounges were very comfortable and its a great walking beach. Shows at night were very entertaining, also spent time in the casino. Looking forward to returning in 2016. Highly recommend the Melia, we have sent many friends and family to the Melia and they all had a wonderful experience, many returned. read hotel review
